Special Election TODAY To Approve W’loo Schools Revenue Purpose Statement
The statewide penny tax was extended through Jan. 1, 2051, by legislators. The extension requires school districts to update their existing Revenue Purpose Statement (RPS) by a public vote.
Today, Tuesday, March 3rd, a special election will ask voters to consider approving an updated "RPS" to allow Waterloo Schools to spend penny sales tax (Secure an Advanced Vision for Education) or "SAVE" funds for future projects.
School officials are emphasizing...there will be NO NEW TAXES, this will just extend the "RPS" to give the school board the authority to use existing tax revenue for buildings, building repairs and technology.
Voting is limited to those voters who reside in the Waterloo School District. Black Hawk County will be utilizing vote centers for the Waterloo School District. Vote centers are polling locations that combine multiple precincts, allowing voters to choose at which location to vote.
The polls will be open from 7:00 AM until 8:00 PM on Election Day.
